GO possesses such an excellent interface as blending with polymer, leading to form a homogeneous mixture readily. These interactions significantly increase the GO dispersion or solubility in the resin. However, due to the presence of oxygen-containing functional groups, its own conjugated conductive structures are undermined. Though the reduction of GO (i.e. rGO), the part of the GO conjugate region can be recovered. Therefore, rGO electrical conductivity can be partially restored.
